Inspired by nature and artists who use clay to create imaginative pieces alongside drawing and painting. Young artists will use drawing techniques to plan and design ideas for the clay work and create painted compositions which explore colour and design.
A wonderful way for children to express their creativity and have fun learning to paint and draw with a range of media and learn the skills involved in handling clay, from pinching to coiling to slab work.
A mini art school experience.
Leanne Commins is a graduate of Ceramic Design BA course at Central Saint Martins, with a background in fine art. She mostly works with hand building techniques to create large and small scale pieces about nature and environmental issues. Specialising in ceramics has given Leanne experience in throwing, mold making, slip-casting, screen printing decals and glaze preparation as well as familiarity with a variety of clay bodies. Alongside pursuing ceramics as a degree, she still actively practices fine art in her own time, mostly painting, drawing and film photography.
